Current customer rating: (0) based on 0 votes
This van has been a great workhorse for me for 11 years. There are a number of things wrong with it now and I have been forced to get another vehicle. It has become quite unreliable due to electrical issues and is now being sold as a vehicle for spares or a repair job if you have the many partS needed to get it going.The motor is fine and has plenty of power - never had an issue here. It is the most powerful 115 engine. Motor has some coke sitting on top of it but has never been an issue. Some kind of oil/fuel leak£? Always been there - black and solid. The motor is definitely in VG running order. Gearbox slips between 2nd and 3rd - probably needs replacing. It has a reco tailshaft fitted only a few months ago. It has a good 2yo battery. LH window not working - needs re-cabling. It has a good set 8" wide genuine Merc. 17" mags with VG tyres 245 road fitted - done about 6000k. One of the small central Merc discs is damaged. The mags are all solid but there are marks on some - kerb scrapes, etc. Basically still OK though. It has an original set of wheels with VG tyres fitted also - 1 small plastic hubcap missing. Hayman Reece towbar in GC. Drivers side small lower window is missing. Radio stopped working when new battery fitted about 2 years ago - the mechanics didn't know I was missing the code for it - damn. Was a good radio with large rear speakers I had attached - they can go with the van too - had plenty of guts and good sound for a stock item- Alpine Merc radio with CD player. Reco. compressor on air-con - about 100k ago - works only on RH side (drivers side) of vehicle - don't ask! Heater was fantastic then suddenly stopped working too. Fan still fine. Cooler still works. Another electrical thing - long list!! A week ago it just would not start - more electrical issues - that was when I had had enough. It has started since but stopped again. May be ignition or may be not - dunno - don't care any more. Body all pretty straight - paint missing off rear tailgate. Bit trim missing off the LH side side in front of rear wheel. 5th orig. wheel is underneath rear end and never been out - missing tool to lower it. NO rust. Front all good cond. Had a new turbo fitted at 175k - done 130k since - EC. All interior is OK basically. 3 seats OK. Brakes all done at about 250k. Front end is all GC. New rear shockers at about 250k also. No other Merc parts or bits included. Has books - never been filled in, but I have done my best to maintain and service regularly in the 11 years I have had it. Always rode beautifully on the road - fantastic brakes. Lights fair - bit cloudy. It also began to stop on the road after going around LH corners - can you believe it£ The cruise would just turn off and could not be re-set until after the corner. Just another amazing electrical issue - no-one could EVER sort this thing!!BEING SOLD AS IS - VERY LOW START. WHAT YOU DO WITH IT IS YOUR BUSINESS. LOTS GOOD BITS HERE FOR WRECKING.Must be picked up in Horsham and is nowhere near roadworthy as it is. Do NOT attempt to drive this vehicle EVER - even if you can get it going - it is a death trap.I AM CASHING IN THE REGO. No RWC offered - as if!Please ask about this vehicle before bidding - there will be no refunds - it will likely be a bargain - so don't miss it. Impossible to get VITO VAN spares at the wreckers - I know.
